Having travelled on a ghastly Hen / Stag filled flight last year , I can honestly say that NOBODY should ever be allowed to board an aircraft when they are drunk and alcohol should NOT be sold to anyone who seems to have had enough. We were seated in the exit seats, directly behind us were 3 girls who were so drunk having consumed most of their own wine brought onboard with them. Should we have needed to evacuate the plane, there is absolutely NO WAY that they could have dealt with the door opening.
Things will change on flights as more and more unfortunate incidents occur onboard. Alcohol should not be sold at 6am to anyone. I have watched people downing pints before going onboard and it is appalling . Normally, flights are completely uneventful but should something happen during the journey, can you imagine the chaos if passengers were incapable of helping themselves and others? Alcohol is fine in the right situation but flying in an aeroplane is not the right place to drink yourself into oblivion or indeed in the airport before a trip. Passengers should make their voices heard by objecting to antisocial behaviour ...bad language, shouting, singing, being abusive to others is not on anywhere and definitely not while travelling in the air. Ryanair is actually being responsible and taking the sober passengers into consideration. Many of us enjoy a glass or two while flying and that is fine...anymore...madness. What would you do if things got out of control on a flight you were on? Think about it, a few air hostesses and Stewarts could find it difficult to handle people who were out of control ...none of us want this. We all enjoy our pre booked cheap flights and look forward to going somewhere special in a calm and peaceful way. Say “No” to alcohol abuse....LOUDLY.
